Seattle Kids Events Calendar

The Seattle Kids Events Calendar will keep you informed about what's happening in Seattle especially for kids and their families.

Many events on the other calendars are also suitable for children, but it's a lot of information to wade through! Most all of those have activities especially for kids. Here I've gathered some events that are specifically aimed at families with children to help you find some of them more easily.

Do you know of an event that families with children would really enjoy? If so, and you'd like to see it added to the calendar, tell me about it here!
